Does God Exist Philosophically?


Does God exist or not? Does it even matter? Many people today base their daily conduct on a “social contract” view of the world -- it just makes sense to treat others well, maintain ethics in business, and lovingly support our families. Those of us with resources and opportunities somehow have a social obligation to “give back” to our community. This is a rational view of the world, and we don’t need any kind of supernatural notion of “absolute truth” or morality to adhere to these common sense principles. Do we? Check out some of the startling realities…
